New Year resolutions don't have to be within the usual niche of saving money, heading to the gym or eating less chocolate, i'm doing none of them and for me they're just difficult. Why not make your resolutions fun and exciting? life is way too short to be boring with the stereotypical, as much as I should probably get signed up to the gym and eat less chocolate myself.

This year I want to open up the cupboard doors of my DVD cupboard regularly because it's filled to the brim with so many DVD's that I just don't watch. I want to make it my challenge to choose 5 films at random that I have to watch during that weekend in the month and then document it, and maybe in the process i'll give some to charity that don't sit with me anymore.


One of my biggest passions is without a doubt, Musicals. In 2016 I had the opportunity to fulfil one of my biggest personal goals and begin reviewing theatre shows. I thrived from it all but still I haven't watched a lot of musical films. 2017 is the year that's going to change. Films are such a good source of escape and wind down so I'm definitely going to be watching more this year and recording down every one that I watch. Fetch Publicity sent me five DVDs to get started;

 High Society
 Jersey Boys 
 Rock of Ages
 Seven Brides for Seven Brothers 
 Singin' in The Rain


I have grown up listening to a lot of the music of these musicals, one or another inspiring my love for musicals so I can't wait to curl up on the sofa and see what the DVD films have on offer. I'm sure you'll get to grips with all of the soundtracks soon enough and find yourself singing along to them too!
